Hungry for travel

The journey from Karachi to Dubai…….

Believe it or not, the actual flight time from city to city is only 1 hour and 45 minutes BUT it took us the whole of 1 night and 2 days to reach our destination. Puzzled????

As mentioned previously, the HUMBLE BEGINNINGS were truly so. The trip was arranged for the whole family to travel with ample luggage and household belongings (clothes, furniture, mattresses,  kitchenware) by a SHIP (not the cruise ships of today, but the cargo ships of yesteryear with cabins for some passengers. Not only did we carry all our necessities for the journey, but prepared some extra for the days ahead after landing at the SEA PORT (just in case)

I am not writing from the memory that I hold, which is almost non-existent, but is a compilation from the excerpts that I had heard from my elders, specially my mum, Siddiqa. She might not be with us  now but she will always remain in our hearts and n our memories, through her teachings and her welcoming attitude.

Unfortunately, I will have to write again later as the thought of my mother has set my emotions with sorrow. Tears in my eyes bring this post to an abrupt end. Do excuse me, till later.

 

Humble Beginnings

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمنِ الرَّحِيمِ

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Starting with the name of Allah to provide me with the courage and sustenance on writing this message to my fellow compatriots. I had my humble beginnings in the small town of West Garden in the bustling city of Karachi, Where I was born on the 9th of May, 1972. My parents Najmul Hassan and Siddiqa, moved to Garden after their marriage and stayed there 2 years before daddy found a job in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. My sibling and the second son in the family, Mehdi Reza aka Afzal was born on the 12th of May, 1973, just before daddy migrated to Dubai. It was not a complete year until daddy arranged for the family to move to Dubai.

This is how it all started MY LIFE IN SUNNY DUBAI……………..
